When you entrust your money with investment advisors or a brokerage firm, you expect that they will handle your money responsibly. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.
All too often, individuals suffer serious financial losses because of the misconduct, negligence, or fraud of investment advisors or brokers. Many see their savings gone or greatly reduced. Such losses can be devastating not only financially but also personally: the amount saved and invested might have been used for retirement, for a loved one’s college education, or for a family vacation.
At Kurt Arbuckle, P.C., our highly experienced legal team assists individuals who have suffered financial losses as the result of securities fraud. We bring lawsuits or arbitration against investment advisors and broker-dealers who have been negligent in the following areas, among others:
- Suitability: When your investment advisor fails to determine if your investments are suitable for you (according to your age, risk tolerance, investment objectives, income, and other factors), he or she could be held responsible for your losses.
- Churning: When your investment advisor makes buy and sell recommendations based on how much commission he or she will make–instead of based on your best interests–you may have a claim.
- Unauthorized trading: If your account requires your investment advisor or broker to obtain your consent before making any trades, and he or she fails to do so, he or she may be held accountable for losses or damages.
